The cave cricket Troglophilus cavicola Kollar is recorded for the first time in Switzerland from the Val Poschiavo in canton Grisons. The crickets were found at night on south exposed stone-walls at the border of dry grassland. Only females were found, which may indicate the presence of the parthenogenetic form of T cavicola in the Val Poschiavo. The presence of small nymphs together with adults suggests a two-year life-cycle. The history of the discovery is presented and the finding circumstances are described. Finally, illustrations of the diagnostic characters are added to separate T. cavicola from the similar species T. neglectus Krauss.
